Overall I was quite happy staying here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is quite clean and orderly. I am sure if you visit in the high season you will have “individual results vary” as is the nature of the Tamarindo area. I thought the $30/night was an acceptable price since it includes breakfast. Most of the other hostels and hotels online did not offer that. Keep in mind they do not have individual lockers but will store your bags for you. Fridge and full kitchen are available at all times. Patio area with hammocks was quite pleasant and you can see the surf from there. A short walk puts you in the ocean at the north end of Playa Tamarindo. Super safe: I left my backpack on or under my bed every day. I had no issues with other guests or staff and my gear. Even the laundry I left on the balcony was untouched. The only note was that 5 Imperial Silvers ended up in “my” drawer in the fridge. I put them on an empty shelf in the morning. :) Stayed 5 nights mid-February 2020. Stayed in the dormitory. Had a very pleasant hostel experience. I only had one noisy night with some rowdy youngsters in the shower. Honestly: If you are easily offended or need personal space you likely are not looking to stay in a hostel, particularly a dorm style. …
Best choice possible in Tamarindo! Helpfull staff,nice room,very clean,pleasant lounge, on the beach,safe even if you leave the door opened, easy access to surf, horse riding,supermarket,restaurants,shopping,car rental... You name it! Diego, Ignacio, Edwin and the others, they treat everybody as a special guest. Feels like home (a casa)! Before booking the place, I was not checking much. But if I had to do it again, I would make the same choice
Such a great place! You feel at home right away. A big thanks to Diego, Ignacio and Edwin! Once again I can here with two kundalini yoga groups and we had an excellent experience! They are always caring and making sure we have the best experience. Nos vemos pronto! PURA VIDA
We came back to Tamarindo for 1 more night before heading to LIR airport in the morning. We saw this location earlier in our travels and we thought it would be a great place to stay. We decided to splurge and get the 2 bedroom apartment. Little did we know that the nightclub across the street blasts music until 3:30am. The bedroom windows of the apartment face the night club. It was a sleepless night and the owner was very unsympathetic to this. We definitely didn’t get what we paid for and he argued that it wasn’t his problem.
I have stayed at most of they nice hotels in Tamarindo. This is they best. Best style, best location, best food, best managed, best value, best rooms, best security, best Pura vida, best surf instrutors. Good wifi, cool staff and best value for what you pay.
